What is JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE or INSTITUTION?

JAMB Change of course or Institution is a program designed by the management of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to enable candidates who wish to switch to another course that is entirely different from the one they applied originally during JAMB Registration. So likewise to the Institution.

Reasons  for Jamb Change of Course or Institution

The reasons why so many candidates do change course or institution is because

  • It helps candidates who had a low JAMB score that is not up to the institution jamb cut off mark, he/she applied for at the initial time to change to another Institution who can accept the low Jamb cut off mark.
  • It helps the candidate to change their course in case they make mistake during the early registration of putting the wrong course which the institution is not offering.
  • It enables the candidate to have re-think of making a correction on either the institution competition, Course not offered in the institution, wrong subject combination, e.t.c.

JAMB Change of Course and Institution reflects or appears immediately it is done. I have heard a lot of people complaining that they have done the change of institution or course for almost some time now but they have not seen the changes or it has not reflected on the new school they applied to.

The truth is that the picture shown above is a practical example of a student who makes her changes in Institution and it reflects immediately, so if you make your own changes it reflects immediately so be wise.

CLOSING DATE

The closing date for the change of course/institution has not been announced by JAMB. We shall let you know if this happens or open this page now JAMB Change of Courses / Institution Closes once Admission.
